The rolling, green hills and rich, red soils of the Mornington Peninsula come together to create a superb grape-growing environment.
The heady days of the Gold Rush and subsequent explosion of wealth in the Victorian colony saw the exploration and the first planting of vines on the Peninsula in the late 1800’s. Wine from grapes of these first plantings was beginning to attract world-wide attention when an economic downturn led to the collapse of winegrowing in the region.
With a revival in the 1970’s, Peninsula vineyards have continued to grow in number and in reputation.
For an area that combines glorious coastline, idyllic countryside, award-winning vineyards & wineries and delicious farmgate produce, it’s hard to go past Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula!
